FREE Music and Arts Event
Belmont Porchfest
Saturday September 11, 12-6pm
   (rain date: Sunday Sep 12)


Belmont’s Porchfest is a celebration of community through music and arts performed by your friends and neighbors in yards, porches, and parks throughout Belmont. Bike to a friend’s house to hear a Klezmer band or host a circus show on your front lawn.

We are thrilled to be able to create this event with absolutely no COVID-19 restrictions, however, check back here or on our FACEBOOK page in the event we need to make any modifications. Porch Hosts and Performers will be directly contacted if there are any changes. 

This year we will have the music playing throughout Belmont simultaneously for 6 hours.   Each porch and performance will be limited to a maximum of 2 hours.  

Don't play an instrument?  No problem, you can register your porch and we'll find you a band or performance.  Don't have a porch?  Again, no problem, we'll find you a porch.  Just read the FAQs and if you meet the requirements, fill out the registration form.  In mid-August we'll create the schedule, send it to the performers and hosts and then post it here with a map.

We will be hosting 2 more zoom events to answer questions in July. If you would like attend one of these events, send an email requesting to be put on our invitation list.
